Fundamentals of Piano Technique - The Russian Method by : James McKeever : Leon Conus : Olga Conus : Susan McKeever
Fundamentals of Piano Technique was developed by Leon Conus (1871-1944) and Olga Conus (1890-1976) during many decades of teaching and performing; and through association with the most prominent Russian musicians of the time – including Rachmaninoff; Scriabin; and Medtner. The exercises in this method are concise and efficient; focusing on the elements of good playing: control; touch; nuance; and musicianship. This book can be used by students at all levels of development; and with all shapes and sizes of hands. The preparatory exercises allow students to begin using the book within their first year of lessons. A systematic approach allows the hands to develop gradually; avoiding dangerous tension or muscle damage. Topics include: preparatory exercises; extension exercises; five-finger exercises; flexibility of the thumb; trill exercises; scales & arpeggios; wrist development; double notes; and more.
